My now former office (full time remote now) paid to have drinks for employees.  Coffee, tea, cocoa, soda and juice.  The vendor we use for that also provided other office essentials like napkins, tissues, paper towels and so forth.  That was his business, supplying this stuff for small offices all over the area.  He also stocks vending machines as well. Most offices still not supposed to be at more than 50% capacity on a given day.  I have to imagine this is hurting him.

So I said to Deedee, how am I even supposed to get to the store when I can't wear a mask because of my large nostrils, and there's so many people endangering my health in there? I have everything home-delivered because I care about my health. I can't go without my Pepsi, my protein powder, and my energy drinks, so I can stay awake all day. This is such an imposition on my LIFESTYLE.

So, I've started buying those multipacks of Frito-Lay chips now when they're on sale.  This is a new thing.  I just kind of felt like "why not?"  I also eat way more steaks now.  We're having a ribeye tonight. That used to be a weekend thing.  I figure if I could die any day, I would like to have a steak.

Living high on the hog dude.  Beef has doubled in price where i'm at; if anything just out of the fact that i'm a cheap bastard, chicken has been my protein source.  The last four months (probably for the best) got me out of my excessive beef-eating habits just because I can't stand dropping 15 bucks on a cut of meat that i was getting for 10, or spending 6 bucks on a pound of 80/20.

This also likely accounts for me losing a few pounds without any additional effort, so I suppose its positive.

Once again it looks like being in the south automatically makes you wrong

Not automatically. Just greatly enhances the odds you are.

/I've been consuming more soda during the last month
//mostly 'cause I came into a lot of liquor and I find I like a nice, tall, cool rum and coke (or flavored soda water, if I don't want the calories) quite a bit
///I like other drinks more but I'm too lazy to make 'em
